Welcome, eat, drink and enjoy!

Our Rainbow Region is named for our history of alternative culture – we love to try out new ideas and experiment. We approach food, drinks, fun and friendship in the same way – with a creative and innovative spirit.

Bringing people together to create wonderful memories is so easy in an area like the Northern Rivers, we just have so many restaurants and cafes, as well as boutique and niche small-batch businesses that produce sustainable, locally sourced, and often organic products. We have the best local farmers markets, we make our own quality locally produced beverages, cheeses and sauces… there is no end to the exciting range of delights that are being developed and produced in the region.

As the region continues to carve a reputation for producing some of the best products and produce in the country, if not the world, if you are looking for a new and positive culinary experience, this is the place to find it.

All this happens in a beautiful, natural environment – whether you are near the beach or in the hinterland, taking the opportunity to explore the region is well worth the time and energy. You may discover beautiful gardens to dine in, airy verandas where you can enjoy a drink with friends, an exciting range of Indigenous food, new vegan dishes, organic products and restaurants with locally sourced ingredients – there is always something new to discover.

There is something available for everyone and every budget – you can enjoy locally brewed beers and spirits, or perhaps if you prefer, a fresh care juice, and pick up delicious fresh produce, breads and organic meats to make your own gatherings at home truly special.

In the following pages you will find much to tempt you and your friends to head out and enjoy some fun. As we begin to open up and enjoy our summer sun… it is all right here on our doorstep!
